born circa 1817;377
married (first) HARRIET [—?—], born 18 June
1821; died 18 November 1857 (re her stone in Cherry Tree Presbyterian
married (second) ELIZABETH JANE STEWART (Mrs.
Jane Davidson), born 25 March 1831; died 15 November 1917 in Conneaut,
Ashtabula County, Ohio; buried in the Blood family plot in the Glenwood
Cemetery, Conneaut, Ohio.379
Elizabeth was listed as Bessie J. Stewart by Babcock (1919),
page 981. Elizabeth Jane Stewart was a sister of Andrew A. Stewart, who
married Margaret Jane Jamison, a sister of Hannah Rebecca Jamison
Fleming, both being daughters of James and Elizabeth Lloyd Jamison—see
#9 of “Jamisons” and also #4 of The Charles Stewart family of
Cherrytree Township in the “Notes on Stewarts” section in The Oil
Creek Flemings of Venango County, Pennsylvania, with related families,
Volume 2. After William Perry McClintock died, date not known,
Elizabeth Jane lived for awhile with her brother Jackson E. Stewart in
Cherrytree Township. This is evident from statements in Jackson
Stewart’s will, see #9 of The Charles Stewart family of Cherrytree
Township in the “Notes on Stewarts” section.
There is an 1863 Orphans Court petition380
“to appoint guardian for Lydia Davidson.” Lydia was described as a
minor child of James Davidson, of Cherrytree Township, “who left his
wife about 11 years ago without just cause and she has not heard from
him since … Shortly after James Davidson left, his wife delivered a
daughter [Lydia], and her mother Jane Davidson is now married to W. P.
McClintock.” Same day the Court appointed W. P. McClintock guardian.
However, on 23 June 1865, Lydia A. Davidson, “daughter of James
Davidson and Jane Davidson,” was back in court, petitioning the Court
to appoint [another] guardian.381 The Court appointed
John A. Stewart. He was a brother of Elizabeth Jane (Stewart) Davidson
McClintock; born circa 1830–1835; died March 1901—see #5 of “The
Charles Stewart family of Cherrytree Township” in “Notes on Stewarts”
section in The Oil Creek Flemings of Venango County, Pennsylvania,
with related families, Volume 2.
In the 1860 federal census for Cherrytree Township,382
William P. McClintock was enumerated with Alvira J. [another name for
Elizabeth Jane or a census error] McClintock, age 30, Lawrence J.
McClintock, age 17, (he was a son by William’s first wife, Harriett)
and Lydia A., age 16 (but with no indication she was not a McClintock).
There is an 1864 deed between William P. McClintock and wife Jane of
Cherrytree Township, to Peter Benninghoff.383 In the 1870 federal
census for Cherrytree Township,384 William’s wife was
listed as E. J. and Lydia A. as Agnes Davidson (domestic), born circa
1853. I suspect strongly that this Agnes was the Lydia Davidson
mentioned in the above deed. She was not enumerated with William and
family in the 1880 federal census,385 at which time William
was in Cornplanter Township.
I can only speculate on the James Davidson, first husband of
Elizabeth Jane Stewart. Moses and Ann McClintock (a first cousin of
William Perry McClintock) Davidson did have a son James Davidson, born
circa 1828, who in 1850 was still living with his parents in
Cornplanter Township—see #65, under Ann (McClintock) Davidson; no other
Apparently soon after selling land to Peter Benninghoff in
1864 (see above), William, Elizabeth Jane and family moved to Conneaut,
Ashtabula County, Ohio. As will be shown later, William’s brother
George W. McClintock also lived in Conneaut, at least in 1864. The 1870
federal census for Cherrytree Township lists their daughter Alice being
born in Ohio. Elizabeth Jane (Stewart) Davidson McClintock had a
brother James Stewart who died in Conneaut and a sister Angeline
Stewart (see #3 and #8 of The Charles Stewart family of Cherrytree
Township” in the “Notes on Stewarts” section of The Oil Creek
Flemings of Venango County, Pennsylvania, with related families,
Volume 2), who married Frank B. Blood (son of John Blood of Cornplanter
Township) who moved to Conneaut.386
In 1850 Perry and first wife Harriet and family were living in
Cherrytree Township;387 in 1860, Perry and “Alvira J.” and family
were in Cherrytree Township, where he was listed as a shoemaker,388
presumably following his father’s trade. As indicated, the family was
in Conneaut, Ohio, when their daughter Alice was born; but by 1870,
William and second wife Elizabeth Jane and family were back in Venango
County, living in Cherrytree Township,389 where William was
enumerated as “keeping boarding house.” In about 1903, at least
Elizabeth Jane (I do not have a death date for William; he probably
died by 1903) was probably back in Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio,
living with her daughter Alice Bleasdale, as indicated in Elizabeth

MCCLINTOCK, Mrs. Eliza Jane, aged 86, widow of the
late Perry McClintock, died Nov. 15, 1917, at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. William Bleasdale, of Conneaut, Ohio. She was a daughter of
Charles and Margaret Ferry Stewart, and was born at Cherrytree March
25, 1831. All but the last 14 years of her life was spent in that
vicinity. She was the fifth child of a family of 11, of which only one
remains, a brother, William A. Stewart, residing on the old farm. To
this union three children were born, two daughters and one son–Mrs. L.
A. Britton, of Cleveland, Ohio, Mrs. Alice Bleasdale, Conneaut, Ohio.

Probably this Alice McClintock was the Alice, daughter of William and
Elizabeth Jane McClintock. At least the time and place would correlate
with what we know of the family at that time.
Possibly another son of William and second wife Elizabeth Jane
(Stewart) McClintock was William L. (or D.) McClintock. In 1880, a
William McClintock, born circa 1860, was enumerated with Alice
McClintock (his sister?), born circa 1863.397 However, there is a
stone in Cherry Tree Cemetery: “William D. McClintock, son of William
P? and Harriet McClintock”398—can not make out
dates; possibly born 1848, died 1851. This conflict remains unresolved.399
There was a William L. McClintock, born February 1861, enumerated in
Rome Township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, in 1900;400
his wife was Cora, born March 1862, and children Mary McClintock, born
August 1886; George R. McClintock, born July 1889; Belle F. McClintock,

80. GEORGE4 WASHINGTON
(Francis3, Hugh2, Francis1),
born August 1819; died 30 March 1865 (according to his large and well
preserved stone in Cherry Tree Cemetery); married in 1844 ANGELINE E.
ESPY, born circa 1824.402 After the death of Washington, Angeline
married Reverend [N.] Norton “presiding elder of the M. E. Church,
Meadville District.”403 By 1880, the Reverend Norton was probably
deceased when Angeline Norton was living in Meadville, Pennsylvania,
with her step-sister Mary E. Norton, born circa 1844 in Pennsylvania.
Also in the family was Angeline McClintock, born circa 1866, can not
make out relationship.404
Apparently sometime in late 1863, George W. McClintock and
possibly Angeline moved to Ashtabula County, Ohio. In September 1863,
George W. and Angeline were still in Venango County.405
In December 1863 George W. McClintock (and probably Angeline) were in
Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio.406 In 1864, a land deed407
shows that George W. McClintock was still living in Conneaut: “the
Central Petroleum County of New York to Angeline E. McClintock, wife of
George W. McClintock of Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio.”
George came into possession of his father’s oil–rich land
(Maps 2 and 3) (see “Oil and Oil Creek Ancestors”). There are many
deeds in the name of George W. and Angeline McClintock and a
surprisingly large number where Angeline was the grantor or grantee.
Perhaps this was due in part to George being in Ohio for a time and
Angeline possibly remaining in Venango County. But for some, the reason
is a mystery. In this regard, one deed indicates that in the 1850s
George temporarily loss possession of his farm.408
This involved a case of fieri facias, [according to Black
(1979), page 565, this is a writ of execution commanding the sheriff to
levy and make the amount of a judgment from the goods and chattels of
the judgment debtor] with Thomas Martin, high sheriff of Venango
County, seizing “a certain tract of land in Cornplanter township,
Venango County, containing two hundred acres more or less—bounded on
the south by lands of M and ? Samuel Hays, east by James R. McClintock,
south by Holland Land Company land, and in the west by Thomas Stevenson
… [also seized were] improvements and the frame dwelling house, frame
barn and sundry other buildings thereon erected, about sixty five acres
cleared land and a large orchard . . .” This action was in response to
the plaintiff, Adbury Dawson, attempting to recover a debt of $332.25
owed him by George W. McClintock and James Bannon.409
The reason for the debt was not mentioned. On 20 January 1855, the land
and other goods and chattel were offered for sale at public auction.
James R. McClintock, George’s brother, was the highest bidder at
$142.26. On 1 February 1855, James sold the land and appurtenances back
to Angeline McClintock (not George W.) for the same price, $142.26.410

Cornplanter Township,412 Venango County, with parents and a Cassander
(Caslander?) (female), with no indication she was not a McClintock,
born circa 1823. Also in the household in 1850 was George Espy, born
circa 1817, see later.
||Espy D. McClintock;
born 12 November 1850 in Venango County; died 30 December 1879; buried
in the Greendale Cemetery, Meadville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania;

who married in 1883 George May.413
Possibly the Mary Espy who married George Washington
McClintock’s brother Andrew Jackson McClintock (see below) was Angeline
(Espy) McClintock’s sister. Angeline did have a brother, George P.
Espy. From Venango News (no date): “Rev. Norton married to Mrs.
McClintock, widow of Washington McClintock, formerly of Pet. Centre.
Mrs. McClintock is a sister of George Espy.” George and Angeline’s
father was Josiah Espy.414 George Espy was enumerated with Washington
and Angeline McClintock in 1850. George P. Espy, born 1817; died 1894,
married April 1853 Mary Jewell, born circa 1833.415
Mary Jewell’s parents were probably Eliakim and Catherine Jewell of
Sandy Creek Township, Venango County.416 (For more information
on Eliakim and Catherine Jewell, see end note # 416). George P. and
Mary Jewell Espy had at least two children:417
Kate B. Espy, born circa 1859; married 20 March 1879 W. P. McCray418

union. Andrew Jackson McClintock married (third) LAURA JANE STERLING,423

In 1860, Andrew Jackson (called Jackson) was listed as an
innkeeper;425 whereas in the 1850, 1870 and 1880 federal
censuses for Cherrytree Township.426 Jackson was listed as
a farmer. In 1864, “A. J. McClintock and Laura Jane his wife” sold land
in Cherry Tree village to Martha Tarr, “wife of George (of John),” for

From the Oil City Derrick
, Friday Morning, October 11,1889:
A. J. McClintock
A. J. McClintock departed this life on Sunday morning, October 6, 1889,
at his home in Cherrytree, Pa., aged 68 years, 2 months, 18 days. He
was born July 18, 1821, at the place now known as Petroleum Center. His
father, Francis McClintock, was born April 4, 1775 and died at
Petroleum Center January 16, 1847. His mother, Rachael Hardy, was born
January 14, 1780, and died at Petroleum Centre July 31, 1848. Francis
and Rachael McClintock were the parents of thirteen children, nine sons
and four daughters, of which only one is still living, viz., Hamilton,
of Nebraska. Father was married twice. He was first married to Miss
Mary Espy, of Franklin. She died in 1847. He was again married to Miss
Laura Jane Starling [Sterling?], November 2, 1848. To this union were
born eight children, three sons and five daughters, viz., Mrs. Mary
Benninghoff, of Greenville, Pa; Miss Maggie McClintock, the writer of
this sketch; Mrs. Rachael Brinton, of Bradford; W. E. McClintock, of
Titusville; John L. McClintock, of Petroleum Centre; Isaac McClintock,
Mrs. Jessie Tracy, and Geo. W. McClintock, of Cherrytree. Father’s
sickness began about two years ago with stomach trouble. Through the
efforts of Dr. S. M. Bennehoof and Dr. J. L. Dunn, of Titusville, we
hoped he would be cured. During the latter part of last Winter he was
again attacked with the same disease, and ever since has been growing
weaker. In July he began to fail rapidly. His children had all been
summoned to make him a visit while he could converse with them and
enjoy their society, which they did. On the evening of October 2 he
asked those of his family who were with him to kneel by his bedside
while he would offer a prayer, after which he asked Mrs. P. McClintock
if she would offer prayer, which she did, in behalf of the suffering
one and those of the family who were absent. Then he tried to sing his
favorite hymn, “I’m going home to die no more.” His children were all
present at the burial. I must here tender thanks to the friends and
neighbors who took so much interest in trying to bring or send him some
delicacies which they thought would be palatable to him. Father
selected his own text to be used at his funeral, and requested that we
should have Rev. O. C. Sherman, of Chapmanville, to attend the
services. He selected the text, Job 1:21, “The Lord gave and the Lord
hath taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Rev. Sherman
preached an eloquent discourse to an appreciative audience, many of
whom were from a distance. The sermon was full of the doctrine of
Christ, and was well received by the congregation, a large portion of
whom were from the immediate neighborhood and are believers in the more
popular doctrines of the day. The choir did most excellent service in
singing the hymns selected for the occasion, and they have the grateful
thanks of all the children and friends for their ready willingness in
performing their part of the funeral services. It was the desire of
father for more than a month to be called to his long home, telling us
several days before his decease, that the only medicine he wanted was
his good will and a fervent prayer for his speedy departure. A few days
before his departure I asked him if he wanted anything and he answered,
I want to be delivered from earth and be at rest. His children and
companion have the full assurance that he has been thus delivered an
inhabitant of eternity, a child of the resurrection, a child of God,
and equal unto the angels, having entered into eternal rest, the bliss
and felicity of heaven.

Citizen's Press (Franklin), 27 March 1912:
MCCLINTOCK, George W. died at his home in Tyro,
Kan., after an illness of only six days with pneumonia, Mar. 5th, aged
46 years, 4 months and 19 days. His body was taken to his former home,
Thayer, Kan., where the funeral took place on Thursday from the
Presbyterian church, after which he was interred in the Thayer
cemetery. He was the youngest son of A. J. and Jane McClintock, now
deceased, of Cherrytree and a grandson of the late Francis McClintock,
who settled on Oil Creek near what is now Petroleum Center in the year
1797. He went to the Kansas oil fields from Venango Co. 16 years ago.

Bussert. In 1920, Smith and Edna, no children reported, were living in Jackson Township, Washington County, Oklahoma, where Smith was enumerated as an oil well pumper (page 17A). The specific information for Smith and Edna McClintock, given above, is from a number of passport applications or passenger lists in the name of Smith or Edna or both, starting with a passport issued April 1923, when Smith's application listed him as a production foreman for the Burma Oil Company, Yenangyaung (also Yenang Ysuna), Burma. The last two online passport applications were for Edna McClintock and daughter Norma McClintock in 1930 and 1935, from Yenang Ysung, departing eventually for the United States. Apparently Edna and probably Smith were out of the country for the 1930 federal census.

James B. and Sophia did not have children. 446 In 1860, James and Sophia were living by themselves in Pleasantville, Venango County, Pennsylvania (page 286), where James was listed as a retired farmer.
James B. Skinner’s (Jr.) will447 mentions wife Sophia
A. Skinner, sons John, Edwin and George L. Skinner, and brother Andrew
Skinner. Mentioning his brother Andrew confirms that James B. Skinner
was a son of the James B. Skinner who died 1860, see under Alexander
McClintock. The will does not mention Nancy (McClintock) Skinner but
does indicate a first wife: “… bequeath to my son George L. Skinner …
and my large picture, with frame, of my first wife: . . .” Witnesses
were James Connely (?Connelly) and H. M. Haskell. Executors were to be son George
L. Skinner and “friend” Thomas A. Morrison. Thomas A. Morrison would
have been Judge Thomas Anderson Morrison of Pleasantville, a son of
William and Elizabeth (McMasters) Morrison and grandson of Hugh and
Isabella Wilson Morrison. A 5 April 1879 codicil to James B. Skinner’s
will revoked Thomas A. Morrison as executor and added John L. Mattox of
Oil City. It was in 1879 that Thomas A. Morrison moved out of the
county—see #46 of “Morrisons” in The Oil Creek Flemings of Venango
County, Pennsylvania, with related families, Volume 2.

He lived amongst the Blackfoot for several years starting in 1896 and wrote extensively on their culture; indeed he was adopted by one of their chiefs, Mad Wolf, and given the name A-pe-ech-eken (White Weasel Moccasin). Probably his most valuable and best known work is
Walter McClintock, The Old North Trail or Life, Legends and Religion on the Blackfoot Indians (London: MacMillan and Co., 1910, 539 pages). The book (in paperback) is still available from book dealers, and there is an online version: (http://www.1st-hand-history.org/ONT/album1.html). Walter dedicated the book "To My Father whose interest and encouragement have been unfailing, the book is affectionately dedicated." In the Preface, Walter acknowledges his brother Norman for assistance in photographic matters and identification of birds. In the front matter is the often-reproduced painting The Sentinel: see (http://www.1st-hand-history.org/ONT/ONT00002i.jpg).

Writing to Claude Schaffer, curator of the Museum of the Plains Indian, John Ewers, former curator of the institution and now in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. said that Walter McClintock, author of “The Old North Trail,” died recently at his home in Pittsburgh, Pa.
